Evidence:
Letter B 71 - 3/9/1860 - "I have now your interesting letter about the Sheep-folds. I think you are right about the title, but I do not care about re-publishing the thing just now. We are on the eve of disturbances in the church which will supersede all such discussions by a general crash, out of which common sense will recover without getting its head broken."
